BAM! We are thirsty…gotta wet our whistles before we head out into the urban jungle of Hong Kong…so we head to the penthouse bar atop the new-ish tower of The Peninsula Hotel, and we are quite satisfied.
The bar at the top of The Peninsula tower is called ‘Felix’…it was designed by Phillippe Stark, the French modern-minimalist dude, and this place is certainly modern, minimalist, and somewhat ‘stark.’ It is a good place for a sip of wine or three. . .they serve dinner up here, but it is a bit too shiny for us to sit down and eat…so we drink up and head on out. Plus, it appears that only guests of the hotel or slick Cantonese dudes with sparkly ladies patronize this place making it less desirable for us to spend more than a half-hour doin’ our thang here. Much more warmth and goodness awaits us out in the streets and alleyways of Hong Kong.
Definitely consider popping up to Felix for a drink. . .you will love seeing the lobby of The Peninsula, which is spectacular, and you will get some good views of Hong Kong proper across the harbor…not a bad way to begin your evening–mmm, aaaahh!
